Apparently someone managed to get a hold of an internal inventory sheet from AT&T that shows the iPhone may be available in red. This goes quite nicely with Apple's other colorful devices, especially the Product (RED) iPod nano. I agree with Engadget's skepticism that the inclusion of a 4GB unit in the list makes us wonder about the inventory sheet's legitimacy (Apple has just stopped selling them, after all). Sure, a red cell phone isn't big news, but, well, it's the iPhone. In red, just in time for the holidays, perhaps.
Details are a little sketchy at this point, but it seems the sequel to the Samsung BlackJack is baking in the oven. The folks over at Mobile Phones Reviews and Tips (via Engadget Mobile) have some specs and images of the Samsung SGH-i617, which has actually passed FCC tests. The Windows Mobile 6 smartphone keeps a similarly sleek form factor with a full QWERTY keyboard, upgrades to a 2-megapixel camera, works on the HSDPA 850/1900 networks, and looks to be AT&T-bound. Let's just hope they've corrected the battery issues, eh? Not much else is known … Read more
Looking at the AT&T Tilt, you'd think it was just another Windows Mobile smart phone from HTC. After all, it has a similar design to its distant cousins, the Sprint Mogul and T-Mobile Wing, except it has a screen that tilts up to 40 degrees to give you a better viewing angle. And this device isn't just about cool looks. The Tilt is one of those everything-but-the-kitchen-sink-type smart phones. It's packed with just about every feature imaginable to keep the mobile professional connected and productive on the road, and did we mention that it has … Read more
Whether you know it as the AT&T 8925, the HTC Kaiser, or the HTC TyTN II, this highly anticipated Windows Mobile 6 smart phone officially got its crowning today as the AT&T Tilt. And we'd say the name is quite fitting, given that it has a slide-out screen that tilts 40 degrees for a better viewing angle. However, this smart phone isn't just about the innovative design. It's packed to the gills with features for the mobile professional, and though we've only had a chance to play with a preproduction unit, we … Read more
WASHINGTON--An AT&T executive on Wednesday sought to defuse fears that forthcoming tools aimed at identifying pirates on its network will harm the average Net surfer's online experience.
The planned tactic is "not about heavy-handed tactics that go after the vast majority of our customers that want to consume content legally," AT&T assistant vice president of regulatory policy Brent Olson said at an antipiracy summit here hosted by the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. "It's about making more content available to more people in more ways going forward."
After a while with my newly dehacked iPhone, I'm left with Tap Tap Revolution withdrawal, many fewer icons and a loss of some of the features I had come to appreciate from my iPhone.
Could you say I'm bitter? Perhaps. But what may surprise you is that I've had a bit of a change of heart. (In my pre-update post), I told you that if Apple decided to brick iPhones and disrupt hacks, it will have single-handedly destroyed its ability to maintain its post as the world's most influential tech company.
But after analyzing the update that actually came out, I don't blame Apple anymore. Instead, I blame AT&T for forcing Apple to do something that it has never done before and effectively become the bad guy while AT&T laughs its way to the bank.
Shame on you, AT&T.… Read more
